Every time I go out for dinner with my Chinese teachers and their friends (I teach in China) they ALWAYS, without fail, manage to make the conversation about Sherlock. Subtlety is definitely not their strong point.
Do you ever feel sad that there’s so few of us in the Yacht comparing to other ships?
It’s quite the contrary actually, I feel happy about it! I never saw anything close to what we have here in the Yacht. We’ve some really nice folks, and very supportive people. I remember when I first look in the tag, a couple days after the end of season 3, and I was excited by all the amazing stuff that had in the tag compared to what had in the end of season 2.
The first Adlock blog that I followed was cycloalkane, her fanart is amazing. We also have ruebella-b wondeful drawings, jdrox perfect edits and a lot of people who made blow minds manipulations.
Not so long time ago, my friend counterpartbelle get in the Yacht and everybody was so happy about it, welcoming and helping her or just greeting because she was new.
We have a entire different level of fandom. Just like it happened with the Mythology AU. erenejaeger started with all, but everyone could give an opinion and say if liked or not, because we’re doing it together.
And I couldn’t forget of the 221b-is-lost-in-storybrooke hilarious post that made me jump in the Yacht, about Sherlock showing up in a crime scene with Nero in a baby carrier. (x)
So, short version:I don’t feel sad, unless is Sadlock. I became an Adlocker because of the characters, I stayed in the Yacht because of the people.
World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Days) is a yearly event on 23 April, organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It is hoped that World Book and Copyright Day will increase people’s understanding of copyright laws and other measures to protect intellectual copyright.
In the United Kingdom, the day is instead recognised on the first Thursday in March.
World Book Day was celebrated for the first time on 23 April 1995. The date is symbolic for world literature. Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died on 23 April 1616.
23 April has also been taken as Shakespeare’s birthday (he was baptised on 26 April 1564, and his actual date of birth is unknown). This year, 2014, marks William Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday.

Anon: prompt: irene returns to london to see sherlock.
equalseleventhirds: also also we were all talking and OKAY au where bbc!irene is still a dominatrix but (like most sex workers) separates her professional personality from her real life so when she’s NOT WORKING she isn’t all super sexual and dominating and shit she’s just living her life and instead of meeting sherlock all naked and stuff she’s like wearing a sweater vest or something and looks totally normal and average and stuff and sherlock is SO CONFUSED
soyeahso: Pearls. Sweater set. Grey trousers. Still in Louboutins though.
Sherlock’s halfway through the list of wedding guests that absolutely do not belong at tables next to each other, when the text comes in. Let’s have dinner. He blinks at it for a moment, frowning as his mind churns over possibilities. He runs his thumb across the phone’s screen, and then taps out a reply.
They meet at a small restaurant only ten blocks away from Baker Street. Sherlock likes it because its quiet, and generally only frequented by regulars. The owner smiles broadly at him and welcomes him to a table, and he thanks the man kindly. He takes his seat, back to the wall, and proceeds to pretend he’s not interested in the world around him.
When she finally slips into the seat across from him, he’s already prepared a number of topics he wanted to discuss with her, and they all fall flat. She’s wearing a knit sweater, and her hair’s hanging at her shoulders. A pair of sunglasses sits astride her head, and a string of pearls is just visible around her throat. She’s not wearing any makeup, and her nails aren’t painted. It takes him a moment to even reconcile her with the woman he knew.
And I noticed that in the most of the times, i only picture Irene and Sherlock at the same age they had on ASiB. So I started to think how Irene probably would look like older, and immediately I remembered Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada
